Apartment Occupant Wasn't a Licensee
LVT Number: #24837
Building owners sued to evict their sister, who occupied an apartment in the building. The owners claimed that the sister was a licensee and no longer had permission to occupy the apartment. They served a 10-day notice to quit before starting the eviction proceeding. The sister claimed that she had a life estate and was entitled to remain in the apartment. The court ruled against the owners, finding that the sister wasn't a licensee because there was no proof that she had exclusive possession of the apartment.
